The code reader you tried does it read the trouble codes in the airbag control module or only engine codes??

hello
Mazda Mechanic: tech0405, Technician replied 8 months ago

Ok this is why it did not provide any faults for you what you will need to do is use a capable scan tool to see what faults you have stored in the airbag control module, can i ask what model vehicle this is ??

Mazda Mechanic: tech0405, Technician replied 8 months ago

ok the most common issue to trigger that light for this model is the passenger side harness for the passenger airbag in the dash there is a updated short harness for this but you need to know which trouble codes you have first before replacing anything.I hope this helps please dont forget to provide feedback for the help provided thank you
